Marc Shiliro's Classic Cars
You're looking at another beautiful classic car listed by MS CLASSIC CARS!
1967 Austin-Healey 3000 MK III
Hello, I’m Marc Schiliro the owner of MS CLASSIC CARS.  You might recognize my name or my business name from beautiful classic cars, trucks and motorcycles I’ve collected and sold nationally.  I’ve got over 20 years of classic vehicle experience.  I’d like to put that experience to work for you.  I’ve learned a lot and I’m educated in many different makes and models ranging from the early 1900’s to current.  Over the years I’ve collected and sold over 400 classic vehicles which I’m very proud of.  I sell a large percentage of my inventory from networking and from the various websites I advertise on.  I sell a small percentage of my inventory at various auctions such as Barrett Jackson.  I’ve set over 15 world record prices on various makes and models.  I’ve also featured many classic vehicles at different auctions across the United States. I’ve had many vehicles that have been featured in multiple magazines and multiple websites.  I specialize in beautiful classic vehicles that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I collect classic vehicles that are already completed and slightly redesign them, service them and detail them. I have also coordinated restorations from start to finish.
 
The MS CLASSIC CARS showroom is located in Seekonk, Massachusetts and was established in 2012.  The MS CLASSIC CARS service department and multiple storage facilities are also located in Seekonk, Massachusetts.  The MS CLASSIC CARS operations are closed to the public.  A private viewing of a vehicle can be made scheduled by appointment Monday through Friday.  The MS CLASSIC CARS inventory consists of roughly 40 classic cars and trucks that we own, service and detail.  We’re one of the only dealerships who document the service work we do to every vehicle with an invoice.  Each vehicle is presented with detailed descriptions and multiple photos.  We offer no consignment inventory.  When you call you deal directly with me. I know each vehicle well and will go over the vehicle of your interest in full detail.  I’ll also assist you with any other needs such as trades, financing, insurance or shipping.  I promise to make the process from start to finish easy and enjoyable.  I take a lot of pride in my business and my reputation reflects that.  I appreciate the opportunity to earn your business.  “MS CLASSIC CARS isn’t just another dealer.  MS CLASSIC CARS is a brand.”

I've been collecting classic cars and trucks for over 15 years now and have seen a lot happen. I've seen the hobby continue to grow not only on the internet and auctions but also with the amount of television shows, magazines and websites that are related to classic cars in some form or another. I strongly believe the classic car market is a great place to invest in. When the economy is strong, the classic car market is extremely strong. When the economy isn't so strong the classic car market holds its own. I've sold classic cars and trucks in both economic conditions. The reason classic cars make such a great investment is because people are crazy about cars, especially classic cars.  These people aren’t just one age group but all different ages ranging from very young to very old.  It’s a much diversified market.  I've learned it's not just people in the United States but its people all over the world.  Roughly 20% of my sales are from people who live outside of the United States.  Some examples would be Canada, Australia, Mexico and Europe.  Also from what I’ve learned roughly 20% of bidders at auctions are also  people who live outside the United States. 

  Over the years I've noticed that the higher quality classic cars have always commanded a higher price. Even people who don't have any classic car experience can recognize and appreciate attention to detail. Over the last 10 years the overall market has been very strong and I believe it will continue to grow.  Certain classic cars prices are on the rise and others are on the decline.  It’s all about supply and demand not about a good or bad economy.  The classic cars that are on the rise are the cars that a lot of people want but there aren’t many on the market for sale.  The classic cars that are on the decline are the cars that a lot of people don’t want anymore and there’s many on the market for sale. Of course, if the car is a rare model and spectacular it will command a higher price as I mentioned. Desirable factory correct classic cars that are documented with matching numbers always make solid investments.  Custom cars have remained strong because each car is different from the next one. They each have their own character and there worth what people are willing to pay.

  Prior to this business I was just a blue collar guy who was working full time selling new and used Mercedes Benz.  I was very passionate about classic cars and trucks so I decided to sell them part time.  Although I had my used car dealer’s license I didn’t have my own dealership.  Overall things were going just fine but my dream was to open my own classic car and truck dealership.  I decided to give up my full time job with health insurance and a 401K to open a new classic and truck dealership.  I had to invest a ton of money to make that happen which required using my family’s savings and acquiring loans such as a home equity line of credit.  I also now would have a lot of overhead that I didn’t have before.  The bottom line is I went all in.  Do you think I would’ve done all that if I didn’t think the classic car and truck market wasn’t going to remain strong?  “I’m putting my money where my mouth is”.

1967 Austin-Healey 3000 Mark III BJ8


***THIS VEHICLE IS BEING CONSIGNED TO THE UPCOMING OWLS HEAD AUCTION BEING HELD AT THE OWLS HEAD TRANSPORTATION MUSEUM IN OWLS HEAD, ME AUGUST 16-17.  IT WILL BE SELLING ON SATURDAY AUGUST 17TH. LOT #103***


This rare and wonderful 1967 Austin-Healey 3000 Mark III BJ8 is one of the best examples known to exist.  This statement is proven with its multiple “Gold” awards from the prestigious Austin-Healey Concours Registry Show where it scored 978 and 987 of a possible 1000 points. Other awards include the Hilton Head Concours d’ Elegance “Best in Class”, Southeastern Classic Healeys in the Smokies “Award of Excellence”, “Best of Show” and “People’s Choice”, Shenandoah Valley British Car Club “First in Class” and The Gathering “First in Class”.  All the awards and judging sheets are included.  As documented with the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate this car was built between March 29-31, 1967 as a LHD North American export.   The original exterior color was Metallic Golden Beige with black trim and black top.  The details of the factory fitted equipment included overdrive, wire wheels, road speed tires, heater, adjustable steering column and laminated windscreen.  The destination dealer was in Charleston, SC.  This car spent most of its life in North Carolina as documented with copies of titles and registrations that are included.  It is a seven owner vehicle and has been with the same owner since October of 2001 until now.  This car was the product of a meticulous restoration which is documented with tons of photos.  It was painstakingly restored from 2001-2007 to exact Concours judging specifications.   Every detail was addressed down to correct wiring and re-plating of the original bolts. This BJ8 was restored exactly how it was delivered from the factory in 1967.  Although this car was trailered to many shows and events it has been driven 3,500 miles since completion.  In 1967, the British Motor Corporation commemorated the last production year of this wonderful car with the introduction of new color, “Metallic Golden Beige”.  This car is one of the original 553 “Metallic Golden Beige” big Healey’s produced in 1967.  The car retains all the original sheet metal with the exception of the left front fender.  A replacement from England was used during the restoration.  The body is laser straight with great gaps lines throughout.  The paint quality is truly spectacular in every sense of the word.  Everything on the exterior has been restored to the high show quality standards.  The car is currently sitting on chrome 15” 60-spoke wire wheels with Sprint Classic 165-HR15 tires.  Included with the car for judging purposes are 5 painted 15” 60-spoke wire wheels with Sprint Classic 165-HR15 tires and the original oil filter.  The new De Luxe cockpit with walnut fascia and fold-down luggage panel looks amazing.  It’s been finished in its original black trim and has roll up windows.  Everything in the interior is in working order. is included.  The trunk compartment is nicely detailed.  It has a Lucas “Tar Top” AGM battery, correct (rare) Shelly LJ225-CA311 jack, correct tools and Simmons hammer.  The engine compartment is highly detailed and very correct throughout.  It’s powered by the original matching numbers 2912cc OHV In-line 6 cylinder engine with dual SU carburetors.  This engine runs and sounds excellent.  The engine is coupled with a 4-speed manual transmission with overdrive on 3rd and 4th gear.  This car was rated from 0-60 mph in 9.8 seconds with a top speed of 122 mph.  The undercarriage is nicely detailed and also very correct.  Many additional items are included such as the convertible top cover, interior cover, owner’s manuals, service manuals, technical information, magazine articles and books.  This is investment grade collector car that is the real deal.  Selection from the MS CLASSIC CARS Collection. 


Unfortunately most classic vehicles that are being advertised for sale by dealers, private parties and auctions aren't exactly what are being advertised for sale.  This is an industry with no real guidelines and everyone's opinion is completely different.  The average consumer doesn’t realize classic vehicles weren’t restored at the factory and are being restored by people in their garages.  Everyone’s level of restoration experience is different and it shows in the restoration.  An example would be a classic vehicle that's  being advertised as an original model with matching numbers could be a phony with a reproduction trim tag and re stamped numbers on the engine block, etc.  Another example would be a classic vehicle is being advertised as a full restoration when indeed only a few things have been restored.  There are many classic vehicles listed for sale that have cosmetic and mechanical issues with such items as the body, paint, glass, lights, body hinges, gauges, window components, steering components, upholstery, engine leaks and tuning, radiators, transmission, rear end, brake components and suspension components.  The consumers are spending thousands of dollars repairing the classic vehicles they've purchased after the sale.  A bad purchase could turn into the buyer’s worst nightmare and be extremely costly!

MS CLASSIC CARS specializes in beautiful classic cars and trucks that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I personally have selected these vehicles and take pride in what I represent.  I'm not a classic car dealer who is only looking to make a quick buck.  I’ve seen dealers and private parties purchase classic vehicles at auctions and online and immediately list them for sale.  Most of these vehicles aren’t being advertised correctly and haven’t been serviced or detailed.  This business is my career and reputation which means everything to me.  I do the best of my ability to represent quality classic cars and advertise them honestly.  To be clear I’m not in the restoration business.  I represent classic vehicles that have already been restored.

  This vehicle is owned by MS CLASSIC CARS and is located in Seekonk, MA.  I personally have seen, touched and driven this vehicle.  This vehicle has been through a service and detail process which is documented with an MS CLASSIC CARS invoice.  I write the descriptions, take the photos, advertise them for sale and answer all the calls and emails.  I'll personally go over the entire vehicle and tell you everything I know about it.  I'll also give you my opinion if it’s truly the right vehicle for you. I’ll consider all trades and also offer financing if necessary.   Once you've committed to purchase a classic vehicle from MS CLASSIC CARS, I’ll make it a very easy process from start to finish.  Once the funds have cleared I'll immediately mail the paperwork USPS 2-day air.  A CD with the description and photos of the vehicle you purchased will be included in the package.  I’ll also assist in shipping your vehicle to its new home.

         If you've read the introduction tab or visited my website you’ll probably agree I'm a bit of a perfectionist and represent very detailed classic vehicles. MS CLASSIC CARS has a great reputation and we continue to raise the bar in the classic car and truck world.  I sell our classic cars and trucks very quickly because consumers see the value.  I look forward to working with you.  Please read my website testimonials and eBay positive feedback.  Thank you for the opportunity!
